taking our culture forward

Board Members

Culture Vannin is governed by a board made up of two political members appointed by Tynwald, three members of the general public nominated by CoMin and approved by Tynwald, and a representative from both the Isle of Man Arts Council and Manx National Heritage. It is chaired by the Hon. Chris Thomas MHK.

Membership of the Foundation is as set out in the Manx Heritage Foundation Act 1982.

The Hon Treasurer and Director are charity trustees but are not voting members - the Director acts as charity secretary, and the Hon Treasurer provides professional advice to Members to support their decision-making.

Meeting dates which consider grant applications are listed here.
